Erick Thohir’s first purchase as Inter owner could be Karim Benzema, according to reports in the Spanish Press.
Fichajes believe that the Indonesian tycoon, who took at majority share in the Nerazzurri earlier this month, could try and raid for the Real Madrid striker in January.
The website claim that the new chief at San Siro is after a big-name signing to stamp his authority on the club, and will look to the France international as that marquee name.

Los Blancos may cut their losses and try to off-load the striker in the winter window for a discounted price, but Inter could face competition from Arsenal.
